Recent media covererage of FRESH 3D Bioprinting

Our publication on FRESH 3D bioprinting in Science Advances, led by TJ Hinton and team, has been widely reported on.  Here are links to recent articles and videos.

Please keep in mind that we are NOT yet printing functional human tissues, though that remains our goal and the FRESH printing process is an important step towards achieving that.
